Being patient with your children

Yes, I have children, three daughters to be precise! And yes, sometimes it is difficult to be a parent. I think we all have that as parents. But what makes us that we are patient with our children, so they actually do what we asked them to do? To be honest with you, I don’t know the answer. I know only the experience I have.

What is a good parent?

For each child, it is different to be a good parent. That is for each parent different. For me it is that you’re kind to one of them and to yourself, giving them your boundaries, plan activities with them, help them with their homework etc…

But most of all, you have to be patient with your children.
